You need a good quality power supply to overclock effectively, as a cheap unbranded or bundled one may not give you the fine adjustment that you need, and or the consistent voltages needed.
IF you have a locked multiplier, you can only increase your fsb to gain performance, this in tern will overclock your ram.
overclocking a graphics card doesnt often offer a huge amount of performance gain, its not a case of a game not playing, and then after overclocking it does with great graphics. in reality you only will see around 5-10fps gain, if any at all.
Thanks for responding,
My main concern is
I overclocked FSB (and RAM ) little steps only, it is stable.
Then I am also overclocking GRAPHIC card using Catalyst Overdrive set to Auto.
Now if there is any harm or danger in overclocking both , the system and Gr. card at the same time.
because I did the same earlier and my graphic card died. This time I am using ATI 6850 which is expensive.
If there is danger in it, please mention so I will remove overclocking on required items .
I do'nt want to waste my new Gr. Card
